Individually, the cost for components of a power supply is high compared with buying an off-the-shelf power supply. For example, a 30-amp 5-volt commercial power supply costs about 5 times less than the cost of making the same power supply, and already-assembled power supplies may come with a 5-year warranty. Therefore, it usually makes sense to design only what you cannot buy.
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
